Could we get a list of all the projects that are currently being worked on or
 that are waiting to get started (that includes my educational software one,
I know)?  That way we can see if any can be combined or if we can close some
if their areas of concern are being covered by other projects outside SEUL.
Incidentally, I think SEUL's willingness to work with and in some instances
step aside in favor of other projects is one of the major things that
attracted me to this group.  The last thing I want to get involved in is some
 kind of religious turf war.  Anyway, if we have the above-mentioned list of
projects, we can then prioritize them by the interest shown in them and the
ability of the interested people to carry them through.  And if someone sees
a project that interests him or her that isn't being developed we should have
 some mechanism for that (or those) person(s) to step into the "development
shepherd" role.
